Patients and visitors

Unsure whether to come to hospital or not?

Our guide to NHS services in Bristol will help you decide where to go to find the most suitable treatment and how to avoid potential delays in receiving help. If you are a carer or visitor we hope you find everything you need to know about visiting the hospitals and accessing the services you may need before, during and after a patient's stay with us. Please read our guidelines on bringing food into hospital.

In-patient Welcome Guide

You may have been in hospital recently, or this may be your first time staying overnight. We understand that any visit to hospital brings with it some element of anxiety. This Guide is part of the way in which we can help overcome some of the anxieties you may have. The Guide is full of useful information that will help make your stay with us that little bit better. You will receive your Guide when you arrive on the ward. If for any reason you do not receive it please ask a member of the ward staff for a copy. Please download the Welcome Guide here.
